Inspection Summary


Overall summary & rating

Good

Updated 20 April 2021

Aveley House is a care home registered to provide accommodation and personal care for up to seven people. At the time of the inspection there were seven people living in the service.

We found the following examples of good practice.

There were clear processes in place for visitors to the home. The service had created a 'visitors' pod' in the entrance to the service prior to internal visits commencing. Temperature checks, health screening questions, hand hygiene and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) were in place. The service was in the process of creating visitors plans for each person.

The service had a good supply of PPE. All staff had received training in the correct use of PPE, and how to put it on and take it off safely.

Cleaning schedules were increased to ensure high touch surfaces such as door handles and light switches were cleaned regularly. Additional cleaning had been introduced to maintain good hygiene standards.

People were supported to take part in activities that they enjoyed with staff. Staff continued to use various methods to communicate with people any changes to their daily lives during the pandemic.

The registered manager told us they were proud of how staff had worked as a team to keep people safe.
